The Alliance Center

The St Julien Hotel & Spa is committed to minimizing its impact on the environment. As a committed Colorado green hotel, it realizes that the decisions it makes as an organization affect not just the environment of the Hotel, but also that of the community.

The St Julien has formed a Green Committee whose goal is to spearhead efforts that will reduce the Hotel's footprint on the community all while maintaining the high level of service and quality demanded by our guests.
